Article-About Sara Carmo

   The next Olympic Games are going to begin. They will start and during from 27th July to 12th August 2012. They are going to be in London, in United Kingdom.
   The Portuguese Team has new notable presences and new names. One of the new names is Sara Carmo. Sara is going to be in Olympic Games for her first time. She is a sailor.

                                               BUT;WHO IS SARA CARMO?

   Her complete name is Sara Ledo Lopez Mota Carmo. She was born on 12th October 1986, in Cascais. So, she is Portuguese and she has lot of success.
   With six years old, she began in sailing. She started in class of boats "Optimist" and she was in the class "Europe" in 2004.
   Now, she is a sportswoman and a winner too. She had her first competition in July 1995. She had represented Portugal in a lot of competitions in Holand, Italy, Spain, Poland, Portugal, France, etc.

  In her new challenge, I think: she is going to have success. So, she hard-worked for this. But, her presence in the Olympic Games is guaranteed.

Good luck, Sara!

 In this letter i will write about different things. I was born in a city called Guarda, here I live. I am going to present you my city.
   Guarda is a small city located in Portugal. It isn't a big city, I know, but it has noise, traffic jams and many confusion, too.
    My city has history, tradition, heritage and a very rich cultural and natural. Do you know that my city has more than eight hundred years? Guarda is the highest city of Portugal, too.
